Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: New Metal Drift Level: Javelin

3 comments by BlackJacketGames on Dec 22nd, 2012

So we finally have a solid release date for the next big Metal Drift update! Jan. 17th!

We’re packing a lot of goodness into this one. It’s really multiple updates worth of goodness in one. The big addition is a brand new deck, complete with an entirely new look! If you were sick of beige and metallic blue, we’re mixing it up with greens and purples!

Next big change is the combination of our demo and full-copy servers! This will give everyone more actual humans to destroy.

Lastly, the HUD has been completely overhauled. After 3 years, finally every weapon has its own reticle! The power up animation is now identical, and obvious, across all weapons. Also added; a widget to indicate turret/chassis alignment, and a ‘boost’ indicator.

Javelin In-Game_01

The new deck was holding everything up. It’s actually taken 2+ years to hammer this sucker out. I foolishly tried about a dozen new game-play ideas before I finally came back to the tried and true elements that we love about our existing decks.

The new deck, ‘Javelin’, is more open; so rockets are probably going to get some more play here. But pacing and flow are similar to ‘Master’ (I hope).

I get an error:

Video device does not support hardware vertex shaders - cannot run game
--
I used to be able to play this on an older computer, but I've since upgraded it and I'm now getting this error. For some reason, programs have been having a hard time knowing my system specs/checking what graphics card I have properly, and I believe Metal Drift also isn't detecting my video device properly.

Is there any way to force launch? If not, could a way be made?

I have this game on Steam. It certainly needs more people playing. With real people playing, the game is very fun and I find myself going on for several hours longer than I planned. A lot of people need to buy this game. The more people it has, the funner it is.

Wasn't this on some "to be released" slot of "Instant Action" before it went down?

Yes it was. We were supposed to be a launch title for Instant Action.

hmm, if you're going to continue those tournament/grudge match videos i think you should implement some sort of spectator role.

1. you could get hit instead of the opponent, making it unfair
2. the two players now can't move around freely as there is always a camera car somewhere
3. it's annoying to watch as you have to back out to avoid the points i made because they started battling.

if you had some spectator role with a non-collision free camera, and options for a battlefield overview from the two team's sides and a top view, and maybe a follow option to track individual players, it would greatly enhance the quality of the videos. (and that means more people will make videos too, which is good for advertising).
